This thread reminded me of a story I read in a magazine that I vaguely remembered. Goes something like this: Reporter of a magazine is meeting a F1 driver at a track. They are going to test drive several fast cars around the track. The F1 driver pulls up in a Lincoln, not some fancy sports car of which he could definitely drive and afford. Reporter was surprised and asked, F1 guy says he can drive fast anytime, he wants comfort when he's on the streets. Maybe they have something there.
Still doesn't detract me from wanting that CTS-V wagon with 6 speed.
